Other Initiatives Program

The Other Initiatives Program supports projects that cannot be funded under other Community Grants. Support may also be provided to national and international projects, such as disaster relief initiatives.


Eligibility of the applicant, the project and the amount of each grant is determined on a case-by-case basis. The Minister of Culture and Tourism makes final funding decisions.


If successful, applicants are required to enter into a formal agreement with the Minister. Specific terms and conditions of grants are provided once approved.

Each grant recipient must provide full accounting for the funds received and meet other accountability reporting requirements as specified in the formal agreement.


Requests for funding may be submitted to the Community Grants office. Community Liaison Officers can provide assistance with your funding request.
